Ahmed said that any government that intends to develop the capacity of its citizens, especially in the area of manpower, must build the education of its people. The governor urged the management of NASE to affiliate the institution with Kwara State University, Malete and University of Ilorin because of their proximity.

Also speaking at the occasion, the Acting Vice-Chancellor of TASUED, Prof. Abayomi Arigbabuwo, enjoined the matriculants to be steadfast and continue to work hard. He noted that TASUED is known for academic excellence. (NAN)
